dropping. >> let me just tell you, first of all, i challenged the bush administration and the obama administration equally on the constitutional issues. my concern here is that they're not making america any safer, when 15% of the people hit by drone strikes are innocent civilians, you're creating a lot of animosity. it's making america more vulnerable. not less vulnerable. and beyond all that, they're violating the 4th, 5th and the 14th amendment of the constitution. i don't know if they teach pretzel making at harvard law school, but what they've done here is twist the constitution into a pretzel and that's not appropriate. >> steve: where is the outrage? five years ago there was plenty of outrage, mainstream media and the left. take a look at this right here. 144, screen left, democrats questioned george w. bush on gitmo and interrogation. 18 had questions for him regarding eavesdropping and parts of the patriot act. only 8 democrats are questioning the president with these drone strikes where people are getting killed. >> well, there is no question that a party wants to support
white paper which the obama administration told several judges if the sky came out, it would fall because it will reveal secrets is basically a diatribe against the constitution of the united states. it's chilling, eric. it says that a high level u.s. government official, doesn't even say who it is, can strip an american of his constitutionally guaranteed rights and kill him if it's easier to kill him than capture him and if he's imminent danger to national security. no standards whatsoever. that's the power claimed by kings and tyrant bees and its te power specifically denied to any government. if the government wants to interfere with our life, liberty, or property, they have to do it through a jury trial. >> judge, we don't have time to run this out but eric holder, 2009, used almost the exact same case for not waterboarding. am i mistaken? >> you know, eric holder has been all over the place on all of these things. you and i have disagreed on water boarding, but one thing i think we agree with and most of your listeners and viewers agree. the president can't kill someone and c

brennan's first public testimony as an obama administration official. expect to see fireworks at this confirmation hearing. the real question may be how this 25-year cia veteran handles the public spotlight. in a crisis, it's often john brennan giving president obama's 3:00 a.m. wake-up call. >> i'm not sure he's slept in four years. >> there may be even less sleep in brennan is confirmed as the next ci achlt director. >> i will make sure that the cia has tools it needs. >> tools like drones. brennan has helped establish in saudi arabia and the eastern peninsula democrats are demanding answers involved with the ool kwad da. it's one controversy he faces at the confirmation hearing. there's his role i the leaks like the cyberattack on iran's nuclear program and his knowledge of harsh interrogations when he was at the cia during the george w. bush years. >> the american public sen titled to know the details of what it was that -- what was his role in the bush administration with the torture program. >> outrage over the interrogation program scuttled brennan's chances to lead the
of the economy. one of the questions people often ask about the first year the obama administration why did you take on health care at the same time we were having the other issues. i think precisely the reason was health care is not just a huge moral, social, you know, all -- technological issue. it's an economic issue. it was one of those we thought by helping to deal with that is something that can be helpful for the economy going forward. you asked how can it, you know, -- what is a positive on health care? you asked how is the economy doing. what is the sector in the economy that is growing and adding jobs through the whole recession? it's the health care sector of the economy. i think it's, you know, and that i think partly because of the i dynamic sector coming up with incredible innovations. the amount of, you know, exciting discoveries that are looming on the horizon, i think are perhaps bigger in health care than in, you know, the many part of the economy. so that's the positive. the hard side is it's a complicated side. precisely the reason we don't leave health care to the private s

. martha: what do you think it tells us about the obama administration's policy towards the war on terror? >> i think a couple of things. they don't want to get their fingers dirty. they don't want american casualties. known wants that. the problem i think is three in the whole drone war idea, number one we may have been very good at the very beginning when we were taking out key people in very difficult to reach parts of pakistan and afghanistan but we've now expanded that drone war and are the third thing martha that worries me probably more than anything we are lowering the threshold of when we use force. it's an important thing to have americans in the loop. by doing something where no americans are at risk. martha: it negates your ability to get intelligence from any of these individuals. >> yeah, they are dead. martha: we know the president is not fond of the gitmo model. it raises a lot of questions about the most useful way to apprehend people and get information from them. as far as we know, right we are talking about anwar al-awlaki, and american-born citizen who we know was an
awlaki. a leaked memo from the obama administration claims u.s. citizens accused of being al qaeda operatives may lawfully be killed, even if there's no evidence of an imminent threat. meanwhile, john brennan, the president's nominee for cia director, will face tough questions about that memo in his confirmation hearing tomorrow. >>> and computer hackers have struck the federal reserve. the hacker group, anonymous, claims to have stolen data belongs to some 4,000 bankers. the fed spokeswoman tells "the wall street journal," no critical operations have been affected. >>> and it's being called the largest credit card fraud in history. authorities arrested 18 people based in new jersey, accused of stealing some $200 million after creating thousands of fake i.d.s, with stolen social security numbers. using those fake i.d.s to obtain cards, the suspects allegedly wired money to seven countries, including pakistan and china. >>> and abc news has learned that lance armstrong is the target of an active criminal investigation. federal agents are looking into possible obstruction of justice

it a lot. and also during my time, obviously in the obama administration, i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated from georgetown, served as my chief of staff at the cia and followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who is head of public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented, young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the cia and the pentagon. and i'm deeply grateful for fore work on behalf of me and on behalf of the nation. and i'm deeply grateful to georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extraordinary public servants, i think many in this audience know that there's a georgetown professor that the president has nominated to serve as the next secretary of defense, chuck hagel. i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the k
that the obama administration is following is consistent with and really derived from the bush administration approach to the war on terror. and i think it is entirely sensible. whether it is foreign citizens who are involved with al qaeda or american citizens, we are in a war. they have attacked us. we have a congressional authorization to use military force in response. and that's what's at stake here. this is not, you know, robbing the 7-eleven down on the corner. these people are engaged in war against the united states. whether they're american citizens or not, we have entitled as a basic matter of our inherent right of self-defense to respond accordingly. jenna: let's talk a little bit about policy not just now but decades into the future which we have to consider as well. as a matter of policy and how this is being applied right now, do you have any concerns about how it could be used under a different administration at a different time? >> well, i think it could be used less effectively by a future american administration. look, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, uavs, is a huge ste
i think as this administration, the obama administration has done, of expanding it to include wounded soldiers and looking at ways that we can support even more veterans, so in the same way that president clinton had to look at the times when we were in office, we have to examine these new times when the reality is people are working longer and harder, and it's difficult to access the law so we need to ask ourselves what we can do differently. >> 20-year anniversary of fmla, can you believe that 1993 seems like just yesterday? why do you think this law is so important? >> the reason president clinton has people tell him it's appreciated, 100 million families have used it, 14,000 in 2011. this is a law that affect all strata of american society. the problem we have and mika has written about this in national memo is we're far behind other countries in this. far behind when it was passed and far behind the benefits -- >> how is in a? how are we behind? >> other countries have paid leave. they have paid leave for dads as well as moms when a pregnancy is -- a baby is born. >> chec

as being good guy, but what the administration is asking us to do is not just trust obama in this particular conflict to make good decisions. but essentially to trust, you know, all the presidents that come after him, all the occupants off the oval office t make similar good decisions. we've send who has occupied the chair. i'm not sure i feel comfortable with that. and frankly, if even jed has misgivings about this mem hoe, t memo, the rest of us should freak out. >> at the end of of the day, it's not the president, its eye the intel and military, is it not? if you're in war time, aren't those the key players? >> and they should be. the problem with the mem hoe is it lets any senior informed official to make that kind of decision. i have no problem delegating that decision to a warrior, a lieutenant colonel who is on the front line and knows what's going on, but you want to hand the power of life and death to january element napolitano or eric holder? i don't think so. again, i think katherine is right to an extent, we have to have somebody who is a grown up handling thes
